Today, the company still embraces its regional roots but has expanded its footprint across the world. It now serves customers in every region, industry, and vertical, with clients having access to best-in-class service and tailor-made solutions that meet the needs of today's complex market.

"As we move forward, we are excited about the opportunities presented to customers and employees alike. As the need for contract logistics continues to grow, these capabilities, combined with our global footprint, will allow JAS to meet the needs of today's market while maintaining a focus on strong customer relationships," commented Marco Rebuffi, CEO of JAS Worldwide.

“This represents the final step in the successful integration of Tigers into the JAS organization. We are thrilled by opportunities that have emerged when joining forces and can be seen in the launch of our initial phase of new JAS Contract Logistics superhubs in the USA, Australia, and China, as well as the deployment of new technology and automation, underlining the commitment of the JAS group to this new line of business,” JAS Contract Logistics co-chairs and EVPs Shahar Ayash and Sebastian Tschackert added.

Dear Valued Customer, 

Due to the recent collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, we are raising awareness that our services and contracts are affected by this situation.  

Therefore, in conjunction with similar actions taken by ocean carriers, Blue World Line hereby provides this notice, in accordance with the clauses 11 and 12 of its bill of lading, of the necessary re-routing of some vessels currently sailing to and from the Port of Baltimore. 

Cargo currently at the terminals in Baltimore will remain at the port until further notice and imports originally set to call the port of Baltimore have been rerouted to other US East Coast ports.  

JAS Worldwide, as agent for Blue World Line, is taking all necessary steps to preserve its transportation services for our customers and to mitigate the impact of this situation on your shipments. 

Lastly, this disruption will continue to impact our services along the east coast of the United States and drive booking and routing changes on both imports and exports calling the port of Baltimore.  We will continue our best efforts to keep you updated on the status of your shipments and any developments as they happen.
